Greenberg Traurig, Tampa
The office of the future at Greenberg Traurig LLP began as a decision: The global firm, with some 2,000 lawyers worldwide, for several years had been in a standalone building in downtown Tampa across from the courthouse.
David Weinstein, the Tampa managing shareholder, says the firm wasn’t going to move just to move. “We wanted something that would be modern and timeless,” he says. “We didn’t want to look back in 10 years and say we did something trendy, but it didn’t stand the test of time.”
Last year, the firm signed a 10-year lease for a 20,000-square-foot office on the 19th floor of the Bank of America Plaza building on East Kennedy Boulevard. It hired architecture firm Gensler and Associates and IConstructors for the design and build out.
